Renewed

"for our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, 
so that in him we might become the righteousness of God."
2 Corinthians 5:12

Because of Christ's death, but so much more important, because he rose again I know the righteousness of God. 

No sin can condemn me. The costly price was paid.

I am perfect in Christ. Complete in him.




This truth renews my spirit like nothing else can. It strengthens me to live for Christ. It was his love for me that placed him on the cross to pay for my sin and now because he loved me first I love him. I want my life to reflect the love I have for my Savior.

  I'm saddened that my sin put Christ on the cross, but in awe that he chose me and am forever grateful. I rejoice that I am found perfect in him. I love this season to slow down and reflect on what he has done and that someday he'll come again and I'll live with him in eternity. 




"My numerous sins transferr'd to Him,
Shall never more be found,
Lost in His blood's atoning stream, 
Where every crime is drown'd."
